Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply for Volumio Rivo and Volumio Primo

The Italian company Volumio srl. has designed an optional power supply unit, the Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply, to optimise the power supply of its own streaming solutions, specifically the Volumio Rivo and Volumio Primo systems.

Story Highlights
  • Volumio slr. has designed the new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply, namely the Volumio Rivo and Volumio Primo systems, especially for its own in-house solutions.

The company Volumio srl. was long known as a pure software company, developing a platform based on the Linux open source operating system that is specially designed for use as a media player, the so-called Volumio OS. The company later expanded its field of activity and designed its own compact hardware devices, which proved to be versatile streaming solutions.

These solutions include the Volumio Rivo Music Player Transport and Volumio Primo Music Network Player and Streamer systems, for which Volumio srl. now offers a special power supply, the new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply.

Optional power supply for audiophile music lovers

According to Volumio slr, the new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply is an optional solution for audiophile music lovers who want to get the most out of the Volumio Rivo Music Player Transport and Volumio Primo Music Network Player and Streamer solutions.

This power supply unit is equipped with a high-quality transformer and utilises equally high-quality capacitors and voltage regulators. This ensures that a constant, clean voltage of 5 V and up to 5 A is always available for connected components, as the manufacturer from Florence promises.

All of this is packaged in a compact, solid aluminium case, which comes in a discreet black colour and measures 27 x 22.7 x 7,7 cm, making it an impressive 4 kg.

In addition to a conventional power cable, the scope of delivery also includes a cable with a 5,5 mm to 2,1 mm barrel connector.

For the sake of completeness, it should be noted that the new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply can of course also be used with other solutions that also rely on 5 V.

Prices and availability

The new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply is available immediately, as announced by Volumio srl. The recommended retail price is € 299,-.

Getting to the point

Although the new Volumio Lineo5 Linear Power Supply can in principle be used with a wide range of products that rely on 5 V, this solution is primarily designed for selected streaming systems from Volumio srl., namely the Volumio Rivo Music Player Transport and Volumio Primo Music Network Player and Streamer products.
